    The Local School Improvement Bond Measure

    Addressing Facilities Needs at Santa Ana Schools

    Many Santa Ana schools were built more than 40 years ago and require upgrades and repairs to continue supporting a quality education. Classrooms, labs and technology need modernizations to prepare students for college and careers, while deteriorating roofs, plumbing and electrical systems at many school sites need to be repaired and even replaced.

    On July 16, 2018, the SAUSD Board of Education voted to place a $232 million school improvement bond measure on the November 6, 2018 ballot. The measure would cost approximately $24 per $100,000 of assessed (not market) value annually, or about $5.25 per month for the typical homeowner.

    Voters approved the Bond measure by a considerable margin.  Over 70% voted Yes to approve Measure I, far more than the 55% required to pass the measure.

    Local Funding for School Improvements

    As approved by local voters, the measure seeks to:

    • Provide the classrooms, laboratories, facilities and technology needed to support high quality instruction in math, science, engineering and technology
    • Repair or replace deteriorating roofs, plumbing, gas and electrical systems
    • Provide modern science labs, engineering labs and career technical education facilities so students are prepared for college and in-demand careers in fields like health sciences, engineering, technology, robotics and skilled trades
    • Upgrade older schools so they meet the same academic and safety standards as newer schools
    • Replace failing heating and ventilation systems and improve insulation, doors, windows and irrigation to improve energy and water efficiency and save money
    • Remove hazardous materials like asbestos and lead paint from older school sites

    The measure also makes SAUSD eligible for up to $62 million in matching funds from the State.
